Another 20 tracks from the mega-selling video/CD series compiled for those who haven't got all these yet. As ever, diversity rules taking in hymnody (tracks from 'A Billy Graham Music Homecoming') through to country and even a bit of black gospel. Performances are variable, George Beverly Shea was of course way, way past his best by the time he recorded this version of "How Great Thou Art", while on the other end Russ Taff shows what an outstanding vocalist he is on "Praise The Lord". For me though the best tracks are always the ones which stay closest to Southern gospel's roots (like the Hoppers' "It's Shoutin' Time In Heaven").
